Time and money saved on work commute
Time to do exercises indoors/outdoors
Quality time with loved ones
Lack of ergonomic workstation setup
Lack of social interaction
Increased sedentary lifestyle
Constant screen use

In times like these, we need #10toptips
Microbreaks in-between meetings, work, teaching etc.
Gentle stretches and movements every 30-45 minutes
Use of headsets, headphones/earphones for ease
Ergonomic mouse, keyboard and desk-chair set up
Invest in sit to stand/foldable desk extension #yoyodesk
Mindfulness practice(your favourite activity) to improve stress and social isolation
Take up a hobby or project when struggling with isolation
